“An awesome sailing to Marietas – worth twice the price”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Sailing to Marietas islands on this boat was awesome. We started a bit early, so the full breakfast was a very nice surprise. We had the best luck and saw 4 whales spouting and jumping, on the way over, even though it was early in the season. What a show! Afterwards we caught some rays and a beer stretched out on the nets before arriving at the Marietas Marine Reserve. The crew couldn’t do enough for us and they were a lot of fun too. Lunch prepared onboard by Chef Javier was delicious and then it was time to don the snorkel gear to see the prettiest the tropical fish or get into the kayaks – both activities ending up on an eerily quiet white beach inside a big cave with a “skylight”. It was a fantastic feeling to become a cave explorer knee deep in water and seeing sunlight in the far distance. On the way back HumuHumu went really fast with all sails and a billowing spinnaker and we got back to the Marina way too soon for me. We’ll be back on HumuHumu soon.

“Experience of a lifetime - a catamaran charter out of Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed April 3, 2011

This is a great trip - most people might not think of it.

Sailing out of Puerto Vallarta to the Costa Alegre was a dream trip. The captain and crew of Humu Humu know the waters in the area and the exotic destinations like the back of their hand.

I think we paid half of what a Caribbean charter would have.

Good prices, turquoise waters and margaritas... perfect!

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed March 2, 2011

This boat is huge and absolutely gorgeous! We went to a group of uninhabited islands and snorkeled with amazing multi-colored fish, that came right up to us. Then we took the kayaks and went to see caves with sandy beaches inside - I felt like an explorer! The service is excellent - the boys (who all speak English) never stopped coming around asking what else we wanted and then someone instigated a dance contest on the nets....But it was the sailing back, that was the cherry on top. It was totally quiet, just the sound of wind and the water swishing past and a group of dolphins surfing alongside - and then we saw them: THE WHALES! There were 3 of them breaching and jumping - what an awesome sight! We had so much fun in just one day - and the price was really good.

“The sailing vacation of a lifetime AND a great deal!”
Reviewed February 26, 2011

We sailed on Humu Humu fo r5 whole days in Bandaras Bay and down the Costa Alegra. It's like no other vacation...you explore villages, marine life (we had a whale follow us!) and the local culture not possible staying in a hotel. Humu Humu was comfortable, stable and crew and food the best. Loved the shore trips. My only regret is that we did not book an entire week.
